Recommended Gooseberry Jams and Preserves

Gooseberries are rich in potassium, magnesium, vitamin A, calcium and vitamin c. But better yet! They taste fantastic!

Gooseberry jam or preserve is a tasty way of enjoying gooseberries throughout the year.

What we look for when choosing a Jam or Preserve

We like to see a jam that has a lower content of sugar and where the berries are the main ingredient and not the sugar!

We want a jam that goes well both on toast for breakfast but also to a meal. This means that it can't be to sweet.

Recommended Traditional Gooseberry Jams

We recommend this handmade gooseberry jam #ad

We've selected the one that has less added sugar and a good amount of berries in it.

Why you should buy it

It's light on the sugar and heavy on the gooseberries, just as we like it!

Gooseberry jams have a light, slightly sour, slightly sweet green grape flavor.

We like to have gooseberry jam on our pancakes but also in various desserts. Try it out for yourself!

Recommended Gooseberry Preserve

Tiptree Green Gooseberry Preserve, 12 Ounce Jar
Click here for price, availability and user reviews on Amazon #ad

Preserves usually have a bit more sugar than jams and are therefor not as flexible when it comes to with what you can serve it with.

But where gooseberry preserves shine are on toast or biscuits with some cheese.

This traditionally made gooseberry preserve #ad is made by TipTree in England with 135+ years of experience of making jams and preserves.

Why you should buy it

We eat gooseberry preserves less frequently as it's quite heavy on the sugar. But if you like it real sweet, this is the way to go.

We think this preserve works best to afternoon tea, like they call it in England. Try spreading it on some newly baked scones, it's amazing!

We stay away from it in the morning because it's a tad too sweet for our taste. But it's perfect for that afternoon "Swedish fika".

Recommended Gooseberries in Syrup

What we look for when choosing gooseberries in syrup

Gooseberries in syrup is usually quite heavy on the sugar. But there are things that fruit conserved in syrup is good for.

For instance, conserved gooseberries fit very well in a pie, if you don’t have fresh berries. The sweetnes of the syrup works well with different kind of pastrys etc.

Our Recommended Gooseberries in Syrup

Oregon Fruit Gooseberries in Light Syrup - 15 oz

We recommend these gooseberries in syrup #ad available through Amazon.

We like gooseberries in syrup because you can have them in your cupboard for a long time.

These are an excellent staple food, for that time when you suddenly want to make a gooseberry pie! It’s not always you have fresh gooseberries at hand.

Why you should buy it

Gooseberries in syrup is a great alternative when you can't get fresh gooseberries.

These gooseberries haven’t been prepared in any way. They've just been canned with water and sugar. This is something we appreciate. They have an amazing long shelf-life if you don’t open the jar.

These berries are quite sweet. So if you have a sweet tooth, these are perfect. But they also work wonders in for instance a sauce to chicken or pork.

Recommended Frozen Gooseberries

We always recommend to make your jam yourself. We also recommend to eat the berries as they are. Buying frozen berries is a good alternative if you don’t have the opportunity to pick the berries yourself.

What we look for when choosing frozen berries

The berries should not be prepared in any way before being frozen. They should not have any added sugar.

When we look for frozen berries, we only buy those that's been frozen directly after picking.

Our Recommended Frozen Gooseberries

Fresh Frozen Organic Green Gooseberries by Northwest Wild Foods - Healthy Antioxidant Fruit Diet - for Smoothies, Pies, Jams, Syrups (4.5 Pounds)
Click here for price, availability and user reviews on Amazon #ad

There are frozen gooseberries to buy online. We recommend this brand of frozen berries #ad because they are true gooseberries.

The small European gooseberry comes in both green and red varieties.

Why you should buy it

We recommend that you buy these frozen gooseberries, because of the above mentioned fact that it's all true gooseberries and that they have no additives.

They've been frozen after picking just as they are. When you have frozen berries, your imagination is the only thing that sets the limit of what you can do with them. To eat them as they are or make a nice gooseberry jam yourself is really cool. That way you can control all ingredients that you have in your jam.

Recommended Gooseberry Seeds

Gooseberry seeds are a great way to get yourself a gooseberry bush that you can plant in your garden.

Seeds are often sheep to buy and you get several attempts to grow that beautiful bush.

What we look for when choosing gooseberry seeds?

When we are looking for seeds, we want a variety that we know we like. Both as a bush in our garden but also that we like the taste of the berries.

We want many seeds in the bag, so we have the opportunity to get more than one bush if we want, but also so we have more seeds if some of the plants fail and die.

Because that could even happen to the best gardener.

We recommend these gooseberry seeds #ad that will become a big gooseberry bush with red beautiful and tasty berries.

Why you should buy it

Planting your own gooseberry bush in your garden, a plant that you have brought up from a little seed, is an amazing feeling.

Especially when you finally are able to pick those beautiful, delicious berries.

If you get your bush to thrive, you will have gooseberries for a very long time, since a gooseberry bush can give loads of berries for many years.

Recommended Gooseberry Bush

Why not plant your very own gooseberry bush?

If you don't want the hassle of buying seeds and trying from the beginning, you can buy a little plant.

It's a great way to get fresh gooseberries straight from your garden, year after year.

The berry sits directly on the branch, which makes thorny varieties difficult to pick. But there are varieties that are thornless.

The color of the berries varies in yellow, green, and red.

What we look for when choosing a gooseberry plant?

Gooseberry bushes are easy to plant. But when we are looking for a bush, we still want a durable variety. We also want a variety that we love the taste of.

There are shrubs that have thorns and there are shrubs without. Of course, shrubs without thorns are easier to pick from, but personally, I do not think it matters much.

On the other hand, I think there is more flavor in the gooseberries that come from shrubs with thorns.

We recommend this beautiful gooseberry plant #ad, that under the right conditions, will grow to be an amazing gooseberry bush.

This plant is the same variety as the seeds we recommend above, but this plant has green berries (the seeds have red berries).

When you get this plant, it's about 6 inches tall, but it grows quite fast.

Why you should buy it

You should buy a gooseberry bush because you will get an endless supply of that delicious berry.

If you get this bush to thrive, you could get gooseberries for many many years. I have seen gooseberry bushes that are about 70 years old and still can produce berries.

You should place a gooseberry bush in a bright, but not too sunny, place.

Gooseberries thrive in most soils but become stronger and rich-bearing in nutrient-rich soils.

Good access to water give you a large harvests and a more prosperous gooseberry bush.

Recommended Gooseberry Powder - Amla (Indian Gooseberry)

The Indian gooseberry called Amla is known for it’s amazing nutritional content. It's used for a number of purposes.

Amla berries are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C. It's because of the high content of anti-oxidants that they are excessively acidic and bitter in taste.

So eating Amla in powder form is fantastic. You can sprinkle it on your yogurt, oatmeal or have it in a smoothie.

By mixing the powder with other ingredients you can decide how sour you want your dessert or dish to be. The powder makes it easy.

What we look for when choosing berries in powder form

When buying a powder we always look for an organic powder. It also has to be berries that have been picked, dried and then ground to a powder without adding anything. In my experience it’s only the organic varieties that fit that description.

Recommended Amla – Gooseberry Powder

This Amla powder is organic.

Amla powder is very popular and lots of people use it in various way; for instance in smoothies or even as a skin and hair treatment!

Why you should buy it

We recommend this powder because of it’s health benefits.

We choose Amla gooseberry powder over another gooseberry powder because the Amla berries are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C.

This powder has a very sour and astringent flavor, but to mix this in your smoothie or sprinkle some on your food, it doesn't take over, it adds to the flavor.

Recommended Dried Gooseberries - Amla

The Indian gooseberry called Amla is known for it’s amazing nutritional content and is used for a number of purposes.

Amla berries are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C. For the this reason are they excessively acidic and bitter in taste.

Amla in dried form is fantastic.

It has a fantastic shelf-life and they are easier to get a hold of then the actual fruit.

What we look for when choosing dried berries

When it comes to dried berries we want berries that have the highest concentration of nutrients and don’t have any additives.

Many dried berries and fruits are infused with a sweetener (e.g. sucrose syrup) prior to drying. We really try to avoid those products and we recommend you do the same!

Recommended Amla – Dried Gooseberry

These dried berries are 100% pure Amla.

They can be a bit hard to chew, but if they are too hard for you a trick is to leave them in some water for a while, to soften them up.

They are also quite sour. Not like the fresh product but the sourness is there.

We like the sour flavor with that sweet touch at the end.

Why you should buy it

We recommend dried Amla gooseberries because of their great health benefits.

Dried berries are perfect too make tea of, especially if you think that they are hard.

This is also a very popular product that's very versatile.

You can use them for eating them as they are or even to wash your hair!

Recommended Gooseberry Juice - Amla

The Indian gooseberries called Amla are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C.

They are for this reason excessively acidic and bitter in taste. I think this makes juice made from Amla one of the best tasting juices on earth.

What we look for when choosing a Juice

Juices are often very sweet and some manufacturers add sweeteners and other additives that we try to stay away from.

There are also juices that are made from concentrate and if that's the case, they often have a very high content of water.

I am not a fan of buying water with taste, when I’m looking to buy juice. I like it when it's made from 100% berries or fruits.

Recommended Amla – Gooseberry Juice
